The Top Ten

Ten Years Gone
My favourite piece of music by the greatest band of all time. This song is unbelievably touching, it can leave one literally in tears. Some of Jimmy page's best work in overdubbing, he used over TEN different guitar tracks in this song. The most essential piece of music on Physical Graffiti. This song will always hold a special place in my heart.
This is one of Zeppelin's most personal and emotional songs and it shows with its beautiful song writing and build up.


Give it a listen if you haven't already, and you will know for sure why this is their #1 underrated song.

2Achilles Last Stand
Second best Led Zeppelin song only to Stairway to Heaven of course, this song is great. Easily most underrated. "the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth, " classic.


It was really close in my opinion between this and ten years gone. The latter nails the guitar solo. Achilles last stand really takes you on a journey. It has so many awesome quality the guitar and drum riffs are the beginning of metal music (yes I know iron maiden came out a few months prior to the release of this song)
thank god people finnaly get me it not only the most underrated led zeppelin song its also the greatest.


[Newest]Haunting lead-in and closing highlight what has become one of my favorite Zeppelin songs. The jealousy I feel towards those lucky enough to have seen this performed live is mollified as I hang on every lyric, note and drum beat.

3How Many More Times
The riff explains itself
Every live concert of this beautiful rock somphony is orchestrated in a diffrent unique way. Lyrics can't be more true as well
Listen to sample

4Out On the Tiles
It should be more known. It's so joyfull and musically perfect, a great song by Led Zeppelin.
This is possibles the best Led Zep song
Listen to sample

5Bring It On Home
Love blues song with little country touch, and old days fame of harmonica use and of course not to forget bonham's awesome work.
It's worth to listen dude!
Great blues intro then Page's guitar riff blasts it away
Listen to sample

6When the Levee Breaks
Based on a blues classic by Memphis Minnie, it should't be among their underrated songs. Just listen to the great intro, it knocks you over. To me one of their best tunes.
One of their best songs for sure, the drumline and guitar riffs are phenomenal. Best intro I've heard in a song personally.
AMAZING SONG, probbably one of Led Zeppelin songs evah
Listen to sample

7Four Sticks
Should definitely be up higher on the list. Awesome riff and great bass line. I bet you played this song for people and they could never tell you the name of it.
Unbelievably good song. Should be up there with Kashmir and Stairway
Great song, well they all are
Listen to sample

8Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
I'm very sure most of you have not even heard of this song. Please, I love it, I want you all to know it. If you do already know it, THANKS!
A song dedicated to Robert's dog, Strider.
Aw, caught you smiling at me, that's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree so fine
This one's tough. There's so many good ones on this list. When I hear this it makes me wish Zep would have polished up Jennings Farm Blues a little more.
Listen to sample

9No Quarter
John Paul Jones at his finest, especially the Song Remains the Same version, with Jonesy's "Fantasy Sequence", as a keyboard/guitar player, I feel that this is a song that represents the culmination of Zeppelin's keyboard-led era.


Brilliant riff, brilliant vocals with great dreamy effects, completely underrated
Listen to sample

10Living Loving Maid
This one should be an all time classic! Epic riff!
Definitely. This is the song that got me into the band at a young age. I love it.
Great song but not underrated.
Listen to sample

The Contenders

11The Wanton Song
Great riff matched with a weird title.
Listen to sample

12Fool In the Rain
I didn't even know this was so underrated! I love this song so much, I though everyone who knew Led Zeppelin knew this song!

WELL, There's a light in your eye that keeps shining... Like a star that can't wait for the night... I hate to think I've been blinded, baby...
An INCREDIBLY underrated song. Sure it's not typical Led Zeppelin but that doesn't matter. Certainly the best song on In Through The Out Door.
Underrated maybe 10 or 15 years ago but in Orlando its one of the most played Zepp songs on the radio today (2013)

13All My Love
This is not Led Zeppelin's BEST song, but it is quite underrated. Very deep lyrics. Plant wrote this after the loss of his son. The rest of the album may have been very good, but this is a very powerful Zep tune. Give it a listen, and you'll see that is does not get the praise it deserves!
Do people say what the list says. Achilles Last Stand, No Quarter, and Kashmir? These are among the most popular of Zeppelin Songs.
This song is amazing! How tf is this not on the list! It's amazing lyrics & the violin is great

14Down By The Seaside
actually really good. SOO underrated its crazy. maybe because its not like other led zeppelin songs.
Musically great, with really nice themes, too. It really says a lot about society.

20The Rover
Seriously? Pretty no one knows about this extremely good song from Zeppelin. Bonzo's drumming, Robert's heart-warming vocals, JPJ's bass lines and some of Pagey's heaviest-sounding guitar ever. Such a good song!
So it's even underrated in terms of an underrated songs, wow

21Hey Hey What Can I Do
I gotta woman wanna ball all day...
Most underrated of led

22The Battle of Evermore
Great, very underrated song.
It's underrated, because of being between "Black Dog" and "Stairway To Heaven", but this is great song almost like them.
Such good mellow guitar
Listen to sample

23The Ocean
Severely underrated. The riff is so powerful and gets you pumped up immediately.
Listen to sample

24Tea for One
Many people overlook this song because it's off what is arguably Led Zeppelin's worst album. The same goes for Achilles Last Stand and Nobody's Fault But Mine.
Tea for one is one of those songs you don't get tired of hearing.
Listen to sample

25Stairway to Heaven
It is so overrated that it is underrated.
If this song isn't everyone's favorite song then it's severely underrated. That's how good it is.
This songs so good if it's not everyone's favorite it's underrated.

26D'yer Ma'ker Listen to sample

27Trampled Under Foot
Trampled Under Foot is my 5th favourite Led Zeppelin song, severely underrated! It's just so catchy! Led Zeppelin making a funk song worked out WAY better than it should have!
This song always makes me smile! If you never heard Trampled Under Foot, you must have a really sad life
My third favorite zep song ever (which means it's my third favorite song period.). Deserves to be more well known than it is.
Listen to sample

28Tangerine Listen to sample

29Going to California
Super relaxing and the mesh of calm guitars is beautiful. Like any other Led song the lyrics are enchanting! I couldn't believe this hadn't been added
I really don't think this song is underrated by Zep fans!

33In the Light
Evereybody needs the light!

34The Rain Song
In my opinion this is the greatest acoustic song of all time and it has such a great strum pattern. Nobody could top Robert's lyrics on this one much different from "the way you squeeze my lemon. "
Close your eyes an listen to at least the first two minutes, if you don't mind. Despite its length of nine-ish minutes, I used to listen to this track every night for a fairly long time.

35Sick Again Listen to sample

36Misty Mountain Hop Listen to sample

37In My Time of Dying
Such an epic song. Ten minutes of pure musical genius.
My favorite Page solo.
Listen to sample

38Rock and Roll
Rock and Roll is easily one of the greatest songs of Led Zep, I couldn't make a top ten list of their musics without this one, but people always talk about other songs from the 4th album like Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog and When the Levee breaks, which are incredible good songs too, but Rock and Roll definitely needs more appreciation. It's so underrated that it doesn't even made it to a underrated songs list! Would be number 1 in this list for sure.
Listen to sample

39Black Country Woman
Robert's so called faminine in masculine way-kind vocals

40For Your Life
Fantastic song that became very addictive to me after playing it a couple of times! Great song from the underrated Presence album.

44Night Flight
The most underrated song of all time!

45Bron-Yr-Aur Listen to sample

46Ramble On
This song is WAY too underrated. If someone talks about their favourite led zeppelin song, they never say Ramble On! It's an amazing song, but everybody is so hung up on Stairway to Heaven that it's often ignored.

47White Summer

49Thank You Listen to sample

50Baby Come On Home
It's really unfortunate that this was never put into an album (besides some releases of Coda)... Especially since it's one of their best.

51The Crunge
It has a funky riff with a nice bass line. Really underrated song from one of the greatest albums of all time. I can't wait for the zeppelin box sets coming out soon this year!
